Kinds of Damages in Personal Injury Claims
In a personal injury claim you can file for a variety of damages ensuing from the accident, including recovering money for your medical bills, money for your pain and suffering, and money for lost wages at work. If you have been involved in a personal injury accident, any of these three kinds of damages can profoundly affect your life.
Physical damages are the most obvious problems of personal injury accidents, and include bruises, head injuries, broken bones, etc. However, psychological damages are also often suffered in an accident, due to the emotional trauma that is experienced. Examples of emotional damages include problems such as severe anxiety, depression, and sleeplessness that can follow any traumatic accident. Monetary damages are those incurred due to a person’s inability to work following an accident, or can be caused by the destruction of personal property suffered during the accident.
Goals of Personal Injury Claims
The ultimate goal of any personal injury case is to make sure you are compensated for your injury and to hold the negligent party responsible. While money cannot magically heal the injuries you’ve suffered, it can provide the means to recover more quickly and to obtain the livelihood you need until you are fully back on your feet. However, there are limitations and rules around your claim that you should understand.
